"The Little Governor’s Camp was quite luxurious and very intimate (due to small size). I was very impressed with the quality of food there. It was a bit of a hike to go from the camp to the jeep across the river, but its all part of the experience. The balloon ride was definitely worthwhile. I am not sure if I would do it again but one must do it once. "
